Play with the guitar as is for a while. See what you think about the feel, and handle height. If you're happy, leave it alone. A mod for "a mod's...
Don't forget though, that this guitar has a long scale neck. That does add a unique Gretsch tone, that pups can't make up for.
Playing and sounding great. No neck issues after restring. Action set where I like it, no buzzing, no dead frets, no gummy board,...
Great run and the best to you in the future.

Haven't owned a JD unit, but the few I did see, did not...
True, the "JT" built units have the floating neck in this area. Nothing wrong there.
The rest of the guitar looks legit, but what the heck is...
Personally, I love the sound of the TV HiLo in the neck position. Bright and crisp, just a beautiful neck sound.
Had one in a 6120 with a Dyna...
Great job, great looking git.

It's drilled a little farther...
